Marcia Doughty Bills

Marcia Doughty Bills, a longtime resident of Sequim, died Jan. 3, 2021, in Lehi, Utah, after suffering a stroke family members said last week. She was 89.

Marcia and her husband Karol, who died in 1977, moved to Sequim in 1954 where Karol was a Teacher and coach at Sequim and Port Angeles high schools.

Shirley Voigt

March 25, 1929 – January 6, 2021

Shirley Mae Voigt passed on January 6, 2021, at 91 years of age with her sweet pup, Babe, by her side. To borrow the words of a neighbor, “Shirley was a feisty, proud lady, and certainly heaven will be much richer now that she is there.” With humor, love and a desire to learn, she was a wonderful mom, “keeper of the home fires,” longtime Sears H.R. employee, Methodist Sunday School teacher and wedding coordinator, lifetime exercise fiend, and smiling friend to many. She is preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Jack G. Voigt, and survived by four children, ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She did God and her family proud.
